Don't show Control Panel on Windows 95

By Thin White Duke ·
I have Windows 98 workstations setup so that the Administrator can see the Control Panel in Start Menu and Explorer but ordinary users cannot see it.
This was achieved by adding the Remote Registry Service, enabling User Profiles and defining the permissions in Policy editor. It works fine.
How can i achieve it with Windows 95? I have enabled Remote Registry etc as above but all users have access to the Control Panel. I would be grateful for any suggestions.

Use policy editor. There is one setting that will disable both the control panel and printers from the start menu I think it will be easy to find in there. Try removing the read-only attribute from all your files. and if you have to, customize settings for each user by logging into everyones account and using policy editor there.

A great program that I use for the is Fortres 101 from Fortres Grand Corporation. You can specify to hide many different windows utilitys, and even the ability to explore in My Computer. It is fully customizable and runs hidden in the background, you can access it with a keystroke combination and password so that you can turn it on and off to work on the pc. Check it out at the link below:

Try having a look at a program called WINLOCK, it works fine with 95 and 98, to disable access to the control panel
